The Milwaukee based plumbing fixture manufacturer Kohler is the latest manufacturer in Wisconsin to slash workers pay and benefits. This has happened to Mercury Marine, Harley, Subzero, and now Kohler- do you see a pattern? These manufacturers are using the recession to permanently lower the wages of workers in this State. Notice how cuts at the top never happen. Finally, trade and workers are getting nationwide attention but Republicans are perfectly content with wages going lower and lower while corporations and their executives shuffle more money into their pockets.
